Pharmaceutical & Nutraceutical

The Pharmaceutical and Nutraceutical sector covers a wide range of products which typically include; tablets, capsules, soft gels, lozenges, and many more. These products are inspected to eliminate any contaminants that may be present so that they do not make it to the consumer.

The typical contaminants inspected in the pharmaceutical and nutraceutical are; all metals (Ferrous, Non-Ferrous & Stainless steel). Additionally, some manufacturers have the need to inspect for product integrity within blister packs (broken or missing product). Through understanding the challenges faced by each sector and application, LOMA is able to design machinery to help ease any potential issues and help to contribute to maintain maximum uptime.

Challenges in this Sector

Some of the challenges faced by the pharmaceutical and nutraceutical segments include;

  • Foreign object contaminants in raw materials and ingredients
  • Machinery or components (sieves, tablet press tooling, wire ropes etc.) breakage
  • Broken or missing product when packaged in blister packs
  • Dust collection on machinery and electrical components causing cross-contamination
